Patron Caitriona Balfe takes on the 2.6 Challenge!

Our incredible Patron Caitriona Balfe has once again gone above and beyond to support children with cancer, and their families, around the world!

After the launch of the 2.6 challenge last week Caitriona decided to run 2.6 miles on the 26th April, which would of been the date of the London Marathon and a run that Caitriona has previously done for World Child Cancer. Not only that but she also offered her amazing fans the opportunity to choose another 12 challenges for her to do, and she would do whatever it is 26 times! The challenges will be completed within government guidelines, and the options from fans that she has chosen so far include doing 26 jumping squats, 26 mountain climbers, bake 26 muffins, and say hello in 26 languages. Caitriona has started with drawing 26 Outlander characters, and you can see fantastic depiction of Mrs Fitz below.
